Repair Solton Polyvox Vintage Synthesizer Drum Machine Reparatur Service16. Oktober 2018
Roland JP8000 synthesizer. No audio output on the main jacks. Headphone worked, but a bit low level. I figured out that the electrolytic capacitor C219 on the main board that sits in the audio mute (reset/power up) circuit and was faulty.
After removing I could clearly see the electrolyte causing corrosion.
I removed the old SMD electrolytic capacitor, cleaned the board and replaced it by a new one. Works fine.. Here are the pictures I have taken during the repair (as always for my own purposes, but I share these with you guys).
